Diary of an Early American Boy

List Price: 14.95

For his fifteenth birthday in 1805, young Noah Blake’s parents gave him a little leatherbound diary in which he recorded the various activities on his father’s farm. This reprint of an actual early nineteenth-century book provides today’s readers with a delightful rarity — a view of bygone days through the eyes of a young boy. Eric Sloane has taken the notebook with its brief comments and expanded the daily entries with explanatory narrative and 72 of his own remarkable drawings.

This reprint of an actual early 19th-century diary provides today’s readers with an engaging rarity: a fifteen-year old farm boy’s brief, concise notebook and author Eric Sloane’s delightful drawings and explanatory narrative of the daily entries. A bygone era, preserved in its simplicity, is revealed in text that tells of life on a New England farm and such common tasks as nail-making, bridge-building, shingle-splitting, and spring plowing.
